Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Carolyn Gerard, M.A. MFT, Licensed since 1985 Marriage is not easy. Trust, honesty and respect are essential to having a loving and fulfilling relationship. So what are couples to do when those ingredients have been violated? And how can couples talk about disappointments and resentments without them leading to fights? I specialize in working with relationship issues, particularly, Couples in Crisis and Premarital Counseling. As an Emotionally Focused Therapist, I help couples move beyond the stuck helpless feelings they experience, especially after a betrayal or when communication has broken down; to help carve a new path from which they can rebuild the loving and intimate bond they so desire. Licensed since 1985, married over 30 years and raised five children (including twins), I understand the numerous challenges couples face. Contact me today to begin restoring your loving bond. www.GerardCounseling.com, cg@GerardCounseling.com, Facebook.com/GerardCounseling, or call (858) 756-8171
